    Default Is there a money note in Creed fragrances?

    Hey Guys:

    I recently had a chance to sample both Green Irish Tweed and Millesime Imperial. I seem to notice a common smell in both. Maybe it's just the natural oils, but it's like there is a paper money note in there. This would make sense, since Creed wants people to smell rich. What better way!

    I think it would be great if money had a Creed note in it! Pull out the great-smelling paper and pass on the great fragrance!

    Hey, I could start scenting my money. Hmmmmmmm.....

    You should ask this question in the Women's section. Females are experts at sniffing out and identifying that particular note...

    Archaeologists have recently dug up a heretofore unseen Creed press release, believed to have been distributed throughout China circa the mid-fourteenth century by horseback.

    A laborious and painstaking translation has proven what some of us have always known, instinctively, to be true:

    "Creed utilizes a tincture of the finest ancient Chinese paper cash notes from the personal reserve of Zhu Yuanzhang, founder and first Emperor of the Ming Dynasty. An elaborate infusion method that involves soaking the cash notes in alcohol fermented from carefully preserved fruits picked almost two thousand years earlier from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon during the vernal equinox allows a flawless extraction of not only the essence of money, but the very skin oils of the Emperor himself."

    Some people get a rather metallic smell from SMW. So you could claim it smells a bit like change.

    Well, we know that he wasn't wearing Hamman Bouquet or No88--this from Bulgakov's "The Master and Margarita":

    In a white cloak with blood-red lining, with the shuffling gait of a
    cavalryman, early in the morning of the fourteenth day of the spring month
    of Nisan, there came out to the covered colonnade between the two wings of
    the palace of Herod the Great' the procurator of Judea, Pontius Pilate.

    More than anything in the world the procurator hated the smell of rose
    oil, and now everything foreboded a bad day, because this smell had been
    pursuing the procurator since dawn.
    It seemed to the procurator that a rosy smell exuded from the cypresses
    and palms in the garden, that the smell of leather trappings and sweat from
    the convoy was mingled with the cursed rosy flux.

    I've seen others reference MI as having a "money" smell as well as Wall Street by Bond No. 9.

    I find it a bit ironic that Creed states that they want people to smell like money when they deliberately take a lot of what other people have -money-wise- into their own hands..

    in response of the note per se ...i think it's Decyl Methyl Ether...even if Creed reps say they only use "natural ingredients"

    lol its funny you say this because the first time I tried out MI I immediately thought "wow this stuff reminds me of what a bank smells like"

    Certainly not most Creed fragrances. MI (and perhaps a bit of SMW) have a similarity to money which has spent time in several fine leather wallets/purses and has picked up some of the notes of a woman's perfume. It isn't a pure, straight-off-the-printer, ink accord. If at all, it's in small amounts.

    Herrera for Men has a similar effect, in my opinion. Goes better with a tuxedo than Aqua di Gio, in my opinion.

    Often, noted with Creeds is their signature ambergris-musk dry down.

    I'm afraid I don't get the logic right. Some ancient Roman, Vespasian, born as one of the forefathers of Creeds early royalty customers somehow (a definite maybe at least for sure) stated "pecunia non volet" or correspondingly. It was about harvesting human secretions to just make leather, whilst the son, Titus, was anosmic to money (pecunia). Strange conflictions. This still unresolved matter could explain the interim disappearance of Creed in natural history until recently.
